Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Another Goalscoring Record At Age 35
By Mike Parrott
Cristiano Ronaldo has just broken another two records for his incredible goalscoring feats. The 35-year-old is currently tied for most goals in Serie A this season with Juventus on the verge of winning another league title.
Another season, another Cristiano Ronaldo record.
The Portuguese forward has been immense once again, this time for Juventus. Ronaldo has been scoring for fun every season now since 2006/07 when he was at Manchester United and came second to Kaka in Ballon D'Or. Ever since then, Ronaldo has scored 603 goals in all competitions in 14 seasons, an average of 43 goals a season.
And he has continued breaking records due to that insane goal average, breaking two Italian goal records, as well a Juventus record in their 2-1 win over Lazio.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner broke the deadlock in the 51st minute from the penalty spot before netting his second of the night moments later. Ciro Immobile who is currently tied with Ronaldo on 30 goals for the season, pulled a goal back for Lazio in the 83rd minute but it proved nothing more than a consolation goal for the visitors.
Bagging a brace against Lazio, Ronaldo became the fastest player to score 50 goals in Serie A, as well as becoming the only player ever to score 50 goals in the English Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A.

It only took 61 games for Ronaldo to get 50 goals in Serie A, beating out former AC Milan great, Andriy Shevchenko by seven games.
Ronaldo also became the first player since 1952 to score 30 goals in the league for Juventus. The five-time Ballon D'Or winner now has four matches left to try and beat the Serie A record of 36 goals in a season, set by Gonzalo Higuain with Napoli in 2015-16.
